Saturday Market & Swap Meet this Weekend!
Our July Saturday Market and Swap Meet is all about animals and our pets, and the Kauai Humane Society will be bringing their van with dogs for adoption.  

Along with our regular line-up of fabulous crafters, we will also feature vendors with animal services and pet items including groomers, pet sitters, trainers, and bakers... theme vendors participate for free, and there are a few more free spaces still available!

Remember pets aren't limited to dogs and cats--- if you know of breeders of fish, birds, reptiles, and all creatures great and small, spread the word! For more information, visit the webpage HERE, or to register, click HERE.

FOOD VENDORS WANTED! We are also looking for food/coffee vendors that will make the Saturday Market a regular site. If you know of any potential food vendors, please share the word and have them visit our webpage HERE, or e-mail halelani@hawaiiantel.net. 

POP-UP TENTS AVAILABLE FOR RENT!  The church has made available a couple pop-up tents that vendors may rent for $10. We are offering this option for new vendors that may want to "test the waters" before purchasing a tent of their own. These go fast, so requests should be made early.
Beautifully Grow: A Mid-Year Update
During this year's annual meeting in January, Father Ryan shared with the congregation the vision to "Beautifully Grow" All Saints' in four areas: (1) Outreach, (2) Lay Leadership, (3) 'Our Ohana; and, (4) The Kingdom of God. 

Half-way through the year, Fr. Ryan reflects on the progress of our vision to "Beautifully Grow" All Saints' Episcopal Church and Preschool in a letter dated July 1, 2015. The letter was mailed out last week and included Pledge Statements as of June 30.  To view Fr. Ryan's letter, click HERE.
The Gift of Music

A stunning gift has been given to All Saints' by a small group of anonymous donors: A six-foot baby grand piano!  

Mary Lardizabal, who is well-known for her work with the students of the award-winning Kapa'a Middle School Choir and Ukulele Group (and teacher to many of our own youth), was looking for a permanent home for her beautiful baby grand piano. She felt All Saints' was the ideal setting for the professional-grade musical instrument, and this week, piano movers relocated the piano from her home into the Church. 

Mark Taylor, Kauai's premier piano rebuilder and tuner (pictured above right) has begun the task of rebuilding and restoring the piano that will take about 10 days. All Saints' hopes to debut the piano on July 26, when Hank Curtis and the All Saints' Choir return from their summer break.

"This is an extraordinary gift," said Father Ryan, "thankfully, All Saints' is blessed with Kauai's most talented pianist and musician who will continue to masterfully steer the baby grand piano and our music program to new heights."

The new piano will not only enhance our liturgical life, but it will allow All Saints' to expand its community-based music outreach program and concert series. Mahalo to Mary Lardizabal for offering this beautiful instrument to All Saints'. Also, mahalo to Morris Wise for his leadership and time to evaluate and procure the instrument. Finally, a big mahalo nui loa to the generous donors who made this gift possible.

Heavenly Hikes Returns to the Kuilau Trail

July's Heavenly Hike will take the group up into the mountains of Wailua near the Keahua Arboretum on the well-maintained Kuilau Ridge Trail. The hike will offer some gorgeous views of Mount Waialeale and the Makaleha Mountain Range. The wide dirt trail gradually ascends above the forest to a grassy plateau and picnic area about 1.7 miles into the hike--- a wonderful location to enjoy lunch! The total trip will be approximately 4.5 - 5 miles round trip (Rating: Moderately easy with some elevation gain). If time allows, afterwards, individuals can wander to the nearby Keahua Arboretum to check out the amazing rainbow eucalyptus trees and jump in the mountain spring waterhole.

All are welcome! Those interested in joining the hike can meet after the second service at 11:45 AM in the Church parking lot to carpool or can meet the group at the trail head at noon. However, parking is very limited, so we encourage participants to carpool. 
Volunteer Sign Up Sheets at Sunday Services!

If you'd like to volunteer for Laundry Love Kauai that takes place every first and third Wednesdays of the month, sign-up in the Laundry Love Manual that will be on the entrance table during Sunday services. Folks can sign up to volunteer for specific dates and roles on the volunteer sign-up sheets, and also peruse the operating instructions that contain the responsibilities for each role.  

A few volunteers have already decided which roles they like best, and others are still trying out different areas. Even if all roles are taken on a specific date you are interested in helping at, please show up and help as a Love Ambassador. (There is no limit to the number of Love Ambassadors at any session.) These are our all-around workers who not only interact with patrons, but are key to the smooth flow of the operation, transferring laundry from one area to another.  Love Ambassadors are especially needed to help with folding and bagging when a load is done. 

All are welcome to take part in this rewarding outreach ministry. For more information, visit the LLK webpage HERE.
July Special Collections for Hale Ho'omalu
During the month of June, the ladies of the ECW will be making a special collection of dry goods such as pastas, Hamburger Helper, rice, bread and crackers, for Hale Ho'omalu, a family services center located a half-block away from the church.  Donations of other canned and packaged goods are always welcome as well as monetary gifts. All donations can be left in the red wagon at the church entrance every Sunday. 
Worship Enhancements Available!
Dont' forget to ask for a headset or large-print service bulletin! Both items are available through our ushers who will be more than happy to set you up!

The nursery has also been hooked up so that the service can be heard through a speaker in that room. Parents with very young children can now sit and relax with them while they play, and are also able to hear the service.

All Saints' Rainbow

A number of beautiful photos of All Saints' with rainbows have been taken over the years, but we share this especially lovely photo that Fr. Ryan took this past week.  
Dodgeball Fever is HERE!

Dodgeball practices have officially begun in the gym, and will continue every weekday until the tournament on July 24 & 25.  The latest practice schedule can be viewed HERE.  Pictured above, the Keiki and Youth on the first day of practice on Tuesday, July 7. Brant (yellow ball), a summer visitor looks forward to dodgeball, with Raiden (green ball) and Eryn; Mason winds up for a return throw; part-time residents, the Hastings, are diehard fans.  This year, dad is considering joining in on the action!  Below, Masters had a blast on Wednesday, some still arriving when it was scheduled to end at 8:00 PM.  It was great to see one of the founding youth members and now a college student, Ty Shiramizu, sweating it out (below center)!  He just returned to Kauai earlier that day. Be sure to spread the word and come on down!

General Convention Elects the 27th Presiding Bishop!

[Episcopal News Service - Salt Lake City, Utah] The Episcopal Church's General Convention made history on June 27, when it chose Diocese of North Carolina Bishop Michael Curry to be its 27th presiding bishop.


Curry, 62, was elected by the House of Bishops from a slate of four nominees on the first ballot. He received 121 votes of a total 174 cast. Diocese of Southwest Florida Bishop Dabney Smith received 21, Diocese of Southern Ohio Bishop Thomas Breidenthal, 19, and Diocese of Connecticut Bishop Ian Douglas, 13. The number of votes needed for election was 89.


Curry's election was confirmed an hour later by the House of Deputies, as outlined in the church's canons, by a vote of 800 to 12.
